BRR is no stranger to working on large scale construction projects.
According to a recent issue of the Boston Business Journal, which lists the Largest Construction Projects in Massachusetts ranked by dollar value completed in 2012 or under way in 2013, BRR has been involved in two of the top 25 (Logan International Airport’s Consolidated Rental Car Facility and UMass Boston’s Integrated Science Center).
Ranked at number six, with a price tag of $310 million, is Logan International Airport’s Consolidated Rental Car Facility (ConRAC) with Suffolk Construction, PGAL/Parsons Brinckerhoff, VHB and Fennick McCredie Architects.
The ConRAC project consolidates on-airport rental car operations into a new parking garage, customer service center and associated support facilities in the Southwest Service Area (SWSA) of the airport. BRR has been involved in all phases of the project, beginning in 2005 when initial feasibility studies were first conducted, to the present project construction phase.
The landscape we have designed will transform this vehicle-oriented site into a safe and welcoming place for pedestrians and bicyclists. The multi use path will link to the Harborwalk, Airport Station and the East Boston Greenway. Once completed, the increased vegetated landscape on this 49-acre site will provide environmental benefits and beautify airport property. The project will meet the requirements of the Massachusetts “LEED Plus” program and is designed to achieve a LEED Silver certification or better.
The new customer service center and parking garage opened on September 25, 2013. Project final completion is anticipated by September 2014.
